Karen and her family took excellent care of Toby. She kept in touch with me throughout the week, and sent me several pictures. Toby looked like he had a grand time sniffing around the yard with the other dogs. We will definitely be booking a stay with Karen the next time we're traveling.

Your dog will be welcome in our pack !

I have four older dogs, 2 beagles , a coonhound, and a terrier/chi. I have a large fenced in yard and I also walk the dogs daily with help from my son. I have always lived with dogs and have worked with a trainer as well as working in a vet"s office.

What Karen would like to know about your dog

I have no breed preferences, but I would like to know normal things such as size, temperament, and whether they have had dog/people aggression in the past or present. Other than the obvious I love a wide variety of dogs and would love to sit any that need it.

About Karen's Home

When Karen watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
The morning and afternoon walks are usually done in and around my neighborhood, but at night I take the dogs to the Arnold Arboretum in Roslindale/Jamaica Plain where I let the dogs who I know will stay with me off leash. The part I go to is a dog park where I know most of the regulars, and I never have any problems with letting my dogs and others run around and play. I am very lucky to live so close to such a wonderful place to walk dogs!

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
The dog will sleep in the main part of the house, either on the couch or on the dog beds.

Time I'll spend with your dog
I usually do 2-4 walks per day, but that does vary due to an individual dog's needs. I will keep your dog out with me and my pets throughout the day and at night the dogs sleep on the beds throughout the house. They will always be getting attention through the day and night.
